+1. Frankly I've never even given it a thought. Set 'em and forget 'em mostly. But don't get me started on the hard to see, hard to find steering wheel heater switch!

Seems odd to me that the OP would waste his time on a forum for cars (BMW's) he dislikes. Hope he is contributing to the Mustang forums.

Perhaps he has a position in Ford, too.

Thanks for the info. Looks like an attractive deal. I wonder if anyone else knows if transfers like this are ever offered by dealers?

The battery might have been well-charged when you took it in for service a couple of weeks ago, and then heavily used without enough driving since then. Only you know if that's plausible.

Also, I...

I agree with your good perspective. And I often wonder if the outraged critics have even read the manual that came with the car.

You know best what pleases you. If I hated my BMW nav system so much I would go back to that Nissan.

328xit. I've driven both, and for my wife and me this is best. Can certainly understand that the GC might be more appealing to others.
